“Formula Botanica truly deserves the highest of scores and recommendations in my opinion. When I first signed up for my program I really had no idea what to expect, and each week and month they continually exceed my expectations. They are the most organized, helpful and encouraging group of teachers, tutors and staff I have had in a long time. They not only make success look possible but they are showing that it truly is attainable with their “Graduate Success Stories” they share often. (Even for a Stay-At-Home Mom like me) I have not been so energized and filled with Joy in such a long time, and I owe it all to Formula Botanica!”

– Robin Wayman, USA
